My Students

My students are frequently faced with challenges they can't control. My goal is to give them the very best I can every day and make their experience in my classroom positive and educational.

My students come from a variety of backgrounds and home situations, but the thing they have in common is their love of making music and playing their instruments!

They come to school early and stay late to improve their skills. They work hard and inspire me every day.

My Project

Currently many of our instrument cases are old and falling apart. This makes it hard to keep the instruments in good working condition. If an instrument doesn't work, a student can't play it. In addition, our old cases are also difficult for students to carry.

New instrument cases will help us protect our instruments.

They will also save us hundreds of dollars of repair bills. Students will also be able to transport their instruments back and forth to school more easily if they aren't worried about their cases falling part on the bus or while they're walking through the neighborhood.
